General Colin Powell wants everyone (especially Ellen DeGeneres) to know that he is the king of the selfie.

Powell posted a picture on his Facebook page today that shows a much younger and very dapper Powell standing in front of a mirror and holding a camera to capture himself.

The picture was accompanied with a message taking a playful jab at DeGeneres:

Throwback Thursday - I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen!

DeGeneres famously took a star-studded selfie at the Oscars in a bid to break the retweet record (previously held by President Obama). The selfie quickly smashed the record and now has more than 3.3 million retweets.

On Facebook, Powell's throwback vintage selfie has more than 55,000 likes and almost 14,000 shares as of this afternoon.
